i’ve honestly never been the best at picking shampoo & conditioner. doesn’t seem that hard until you get to the hair care aisle and realize that there’s about 30 different shampoos that all look the same. i mean i usually grab the same tea tree oil products, whatever promotes volume and body, or (let’s get real) looks aesthetically pleasing. do they ever really work? ehh kinda? do i even know what tea tree oil does for my hair? nope, not really. other than it just seems to really get my hair SQUEAKY clean.
it’s almost like i needed something custom made for my fine, soft, flat hair AND that works well with the super soft water at our house.
when Formulate reached out to me about this idea or custom haircare, i’ve gotta admit, i was a little skeptical. but let me tell you how wrong i was. you know the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover?” that fits this situation perfectly. they’ve got this shampoo/conditioner thing down to a science…literally.
instead of typing out a full fledged novel for a review, i filmed a youtube video for y’all explaining how the whole process works, my thoughts, etc! i will warn you it’s a scarily positive review video, which i know some people take as fake. please know that i will NEVER give a fake review for the sake of a product, and that all opinions stated are my own.

you know that feeling you get when you find a foundation that matches perfectly, or a pair of jeans that fit just right, or a bra that’s equally comfy & flattering? how you just wanna shout from the rooftops about how thrilled you are? well let me tell you that’s exactly what i’m doing in this post! today, the blog is my rooftop & i’m shouting about the BEST skincare combo!
hi babes! comin’ at ya today with makeup tutorial perfect for fall (or any time really…i’m that obsessed). ever since i discovered the beautiful metallic rust shade in my morphe palette, i’ve been using it nonstop. like i’m surprised i haven’t hit pan on it. this look would be beautiful once we’re deep into fall, but i think it’s also a good transition look coming from summer. it’s deeper but the orangey, red tones scream HOT SUMMER NIGHTS. and now looking back on it, i wonder why i didn’t name this look that….dang it.
babes, i don’t think i’ve been this obsessed with a trend in quite a while. i used to wear a cute bandana in my hair all the time back in high school, so i’m LIVING that the hair scarf is back in style. i’ve been wearing mine here and there over the past couple of weeks and keep getting compliments & questions about how to wear them, so i thought i’d just share my favorite ways to incorporate scarves into my hair styles!
these four hair styles are great options for when it’s hot out, you need your hair out of your face, or (let’s be honest) you just don’t want to wash your hair that day. scroll on down to get the deets on these adorable looks & to shop some of my favorite hair scarves!
1. the tupac
so simple. roll the scarf diagonally, place around your neck, pull ends up & double knot.
2. the pony bow
also super simple. pull hair back in a low pony, roll the scarf diagonally, wrap around the pony & double knot. i like to fluff the ends of the scarf when i’m done so it’s nice and flowy.
3. the hidden headband
takes a little more time, but sooo cute in the end.
pull back your hair except for at the nape of your neck, widely fold scarf diagonally, tie below the hair you pulled up, let down your hair & pull it all back in a low bun/pony/braid!
4. the bun wrap
saved the best for last. this look is my absolute FAVE!
start with your hair in a top knot, roll scarf diagonally, wrap scarf to the back then the front and back to the back & double knot to finish.
